15,000 Balloons Promote TEDxAmsterdam (Watch It Live on November 30)

So what is human nature? Who are we, how do we think, feel and act? What are our limitations, and how can we overcome them? What do we share, how we are different, how we can be fooled and how lucky are we to be alive?

Those are the questions at the heart of the 2012 edition of TEDxAmsterdam, and you can watch it live online, in HD, starting tomorrow morning at 9am Amsterdam time. (The video will stream from the TEDxAmsterdam homepage here.)

If you check out the program, you’ll see that Dan Ariely will be among the speakers. He’s the Duke prof who will teach “A Beginner’s Guide to Irrational Behavior,” a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) starting next year. (It’s in our collection of Free Online Certificate Courses & MOOCs from Great Universities.)

In anticipation of the event, artist Guido Verhoef blew up 15,000 balloons to reveal the true face of human nature. You can see what it looks like above.
